I like the question...thanks. I ask for returns pre and post fees but here is how I think about it and I would be curious to get your thoughts.
He manages ~10% of my portfolio including 50% of the 401k I have turned over and a few structured notes. Looking at it that way the fees are high. However 1. He balances my allocations across all of my investments, ie the entire 100% of assets
2. He runs an annual plan for me
3. And I can not stress this enough...when he talks to my wife to save money, she believes him...that alone is worth the delta. I banged my head against the wall for years. She never belived me
